Just off the coast of the Midway Islands, there is some disruption going on. In the sequel to the heavily acclaimed NES and Arcade hit 1942, you fight your battles during the hideous time known as World War II, and now, it is on the Turbografx-16. Additions to 1943 include an energy bar that is basically your health meter. Once it is gone, you're gone! Such power-ups like cyclones will defeat everyone around you, but also be on the lookout for special health items that will regenerate your energy bar, which is key to your survival!
